Online Comics

Back in the day when I worked for a call centre finding new online comics became a bit of an obsession for me. Anything to drive back the despair brought on by knuckle-dragging "internet users" from Baton Rouge. Even today, well free of that oppressive and soul draining job I'm always on the look-out for new comics to add to my morning routine.

Gone Fishin'

Sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction. I'm preparing this post on Wednesday evening since I'm leaving for a brief vacation tomorrow morning. The wife and I are visiting some friends in tropical Boston and I'm running into space issues before I pack my first pair of socks. Said friends have a cube, but only two controllers.
Gamespot reports that Sony will continue their "Playstation Experience" event in London this year after the success of last year's show. Running along side ECTS it will begin August 28th and go until the 31st.

Myth II v1.4 Released

It has been an interesting week so far. I went out to my car on Monday to find it had been broken into and the stereo was gone. The ONE time I leave the faceplate on and BAM! Stolen. I was actually pretty calm about it since it felt like it was only a matter of time. I've lived in the city for about five years now and this is the first time something nasty like this has happened to me.
As if Blood Pudding wasn't enough, there's now another reason to stay away from England. Or alternately, for all you CS lovers in the audience, if Elizabeth Hurley wasn't enough, now theres another reason to move to England. Fradley Airfield will soon contain the largest concentration of Counter Strike players on the planet, as they prepare to build the map de_dust in real life.
In the interest of full disclosure, I'm a hype addict.  Oh, no question I'll occasionally climb on my Soapbox and shout down the marketing terror that is media hype, but I freely admit it's a bit disingenuous, what with my running a media website and all.  I think back on days when the ability to create side scrolling, much less parallax, on a PC was a pretty remarkable thing, and I

Special Guest Edition

Proving that I shouldn't have explained the concept of delegating authority, Certis has put me in charge of enlightening you on this week's upcoming releases.  Having been instructed not to take this as an opportunity to spout polysyllabic words, and just, as they say in the vernacular, 'get down to business', I'm taking a put up and shut up approach.  So, read on for this
